Nashville indie-pop trio COIN have dropped 'Youuu' from their upcoming album 'Dreamland'.

The trio - who have supported The 1975 - penned the melancholic synth-pop track during the devastating wildfires in California in 2018, but at the heart of the poetic lyrics is an uplifting message.


Watch the lyric video for 'Youuu':

On the inspiration behind the track, the band wrote on Instagram: ""Youuu” is out now.

"We began writing it in the middle of a drought — in California & in our creative process.

"For weeks, it seemed we were just spinning our wheels, waiting for the sun to come. "Overlooking the mountains, I realized the sun is always up.

"The thing you’ve been patiently searching for may be right in front of you, just positioned behind your own clouded perception.

"We wish to control everything before we simply choose to notice anything.

"I’m still learning, but I don’t want to waste my time trying to find something special, only to realize I was holding it all along. (sic)"

Singer Chase Lawrence , guitarist Joe Memmel and drummer Ryan Winnen's latest single is much in the vein of Blossoms' 'Cool Like You' era, with that 80s' synth-pop goodness.


Listen to 'Crash My Car':

Speaking about 'Dreamland', frontman Chase teased "From Nashville to Seoul to London to Los Angeles, we recorded everywhere but a studio. For the past two years, we made this album in green rooms, bedrooms, airplanes and

buses.

"‘Dreamland’ is a patchwork quilt of everywhere we’ve been – a sonic journal of orchestras,

out of tune guitars, church choirs and iPhone voice memos.”


'Dreamland' - the follow-up to 2017's 'How Will You Know If You Never Try' - is released on February 21.
